Thread Details

My wife and I are celebrating our 15 year anniversary the first week of November (5th-8th) and haven't booked our trip yet. Is there a good site out there besides google flights where I can look at options for flight and hotel by destination? Confused

Thanks for your help!

I think it helps A LOT to say where you are from and what kind of destinations you enjoy, also if you are a part of any airlines or hotel reward program.

This was a deal just posted to my email..but again, no idea your location to know if you can take advantage of any of the flights.

if you are in the US - use:

www.theflightdeal.com
www.skyscanner.com (they have a "fly anywhere" option and you just put in dates)
google flights
kayak world map view for flights

Also - shoot me a DM with your email and I'll be happy to include you in my airfare deal news blast Smilie

Secretflying.com and hopper.com are two other options.

Try Kayak explore to find out where you can go and for how much.

http://www.kayak.com/explore/

KAYAK.com/explore is an interactive, map-based search tool that shows flight prices from almost any origin to destinations around the world.

Thanks everyone! I'm in San Francisco so I have three potential Airports to fly out of... SFO, Oakland and San Jose.

You all have been a huge help. I've been in a scramble to book something given that I'm coming up on 14 days before the trip when I believe prices go up.

Much appreciated!!!

Here is today's menu of flights from SFO where your dates are still within the minimum advance purchase date requirements:


http://www.theflightdeal.com/cate...deals/sfo/


NYC - $250 round trip
Lima Peru - $450 round trip
Rio Brazil - $560 round trip (looong flight, even from SFO)


You can also go to Skyscanner.com and, for destination, type in "Everywhere" and it will put down flights where SFO is an origination point. Not perfect, but useful for seeing what falls in your budget


Good luck and enjoy!

A great way to save on lodging is: www.AirBnB.com

VRBO.com is also good for lodging -- that is if you don't jump on that Neiman Marcus deal.

I like traveling very much,I often spend my vacation in variety of places.I think you should make a traveling plan by yourself to give your wife a pleasant surprise.

I have a good experience with Tripadvisor. They provides good deal on flight and hotels worldwide. You may also check that online.
